New Delhi: The Central Institute for Buffalo Research (CIBR), Hisar has achieved a milestone within the historical past of buffalo cloning because the institute efficiently produced 7 cloned calves from one bull M-29 and recloned the Hisar Gaurav cloned bull. The CIBR has claimed that when these buffalo calves will develop into grown-up bulls, they’ll collectively be capable of contribute 10 to 15 lakh semen doses which is able to assist in extending the milk manufacturing in India.
Dr Satbir Singh Dahiya, Director, CIRB Hisar, advised Zee News that these calves have been created by cloning and added “If we talk about the global scenario, experiments on animal cloning have been done only in three countries.” India’s identify will now be on the forefront if we take a look at the CIBR’s achievement, he added. 
The CIBR right now formally confirmed the manufacturing of eight cloned buffalos. Of these, 7 calves are cloned from M2-9 breed, and recloning of the Hisar Gaurav cloned bull. All these clones are born between October 2019 and January 2020.
Dr Prem Singh Yadav, Head of Cloning Team, CIRB Hisar, mentioned that Murra breed of Haryana has no match within the milk manufacturing everywhere in the world. There are about 11 crore Murra buffalos in India comprising over 56% of the whole inhabitants on this planet. 
Dr Yadav additional mentioned, “These calves are created through the cloning process. Scientists of the institute took two to three years to complete the process. The cloning process for animals in India started from National Dairy Research Institute (NDRI), Karnal in 2009, and then comes the CIRB at Hisar, where the latest tissues are used in the lab for cloning process and then the same is implanted in a buffalo’s womb.”
